In the ISAD template, this is in the Identity Area
Add to all templates where this option exists. It will be a single free text date field, but like the existing free-text date fields in the Dates of creation area, when values are added, AtoM will try to parse the dates and add values for Start and End. If the user wants to review and/or change this parsing, they will have to navigate to the new description and edit it via the Dates area - no need to add Start/End fields to the "Add new child levels" section.

When multiple child records are added at once, it seems that the dates from the first are being passed down to all additional child records, even if different values are entered.
1) Enter edit mode on an existing archival description
2) Create new child-level descriptions using the quick-entry "Add new child levels" interface:
- TEST1 - Item - This is test item one - 1984 - [2012?]
- TEST2 - Series - This is test series two - 2012
- TEST3 - Subseries - This is test subseries three - [1984?] - 1999
All three records end up with 1984 in start date, and 2012 in end date fields. See attached screenshots from edit mode.
Dates entered in each new child-level record are respected and preserved.
